This was the best guide I could have on my grandsons first bonefishing trip. Dwayne was very patient and made the experience unforgettable. He was very instructive, knowledgeable of where the fish were, and pleasant. My grandson caught 13 bonefish, 3 Spanish Mackerel, 5 Blue Runners on a fly rod. Then on a spinning rod he caught 2 lemon sharks and one black tip shark. Dwayne made it all happen. I would highly recommend him as your guide!

Dwayne is an outstanding guide. His ability to see the bonefish is amazing. He was able to put us on fish consistently. And he did not get frustrated with my poor casting abilities. One of the days the fishing was tough because of the high winds, but he stayed out an extra two hours just so we could catch a fish. He is really great.

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending a week bonefishing with Captain Dwayne Knowles the week of Feb 25, 2017. Dwayne is extremely knowledgeable about the flats around Long Island and worked very hard to make this a successful fishing trip.  He did his best to put us on the fish in spite of some windy and cloudy weather. Dwayne knows his craft and we were able to catch enough bonefish to keep us smiling and happy. I would recommend Dwayne to anyone wanting to catch bonefish on Long Island!! Thanks, Dwayne!!
